    ACTIVE RISK MANAGEMENT

    While capital markets are broadly efficient, they are not perfectly efficient. There are many factors besides broad market risk that a significant portion of investors will shy away from, and for which the market will therefore award a risk premium. We believe that by thoughtfully adding these risks, rather than merely adding additional market exposure, investors can create a portfolio with a higher expected return and a better risk/return profile.

    CONCENTRATED PORTFOLIOS

    Our highest conviction investments are concentrated to have impact in client portfolios, delivering superior risk-adjusted returns over time. Our boutique size provides clients with a structural advantage allowing us to allocate our best ideas across all our client portfolios.

    HIGHLY SELECTIVE INVESTMENTS

    Independent teams with capacity constrained strategies will outperform large firms is a belief that guides our selection process. A focus on long-term investment success places tremendous weight on operational excellence, a quality in managers we deem non-negotiable. Decades of research experience have shown that manager integrity, transparency, and culture are intangible qualities essential to our investment success.
